Sugar Crumbs was an accident. It truly was. I've always been an avid crafter and have dabbled in so many areas but when I learned the art of amigurumi, I was hooked. No pun intended. I made so many little creatures that I couldn't keep them all so I gave them away. Eventually people started asking if they could buy them. And so, Sugar Crumbs was born!
The most challenging thing for me continues to be balance. Truth be told, I just want to play with yarn all day. I could sit and crochet all day and not grow bored. But there are emails to be answered, social networks to socialize on, pictures that need to be taken and a shop that needs to be updated.
Luckily, I do enjoy those aspects as well. But not nearly as much as creating!
When I first started creating amigurumi, I was very much influenced by the Japanese culture. I loved all the little kawaii faces and all the sweet little animals I kept seeing. But little by little, Sugar Crumbs creatures evolved into my own idea of adorable.
I keep creating because I love sharing the little bits of cute I have frolicking around my mind with the world. I love taking a ball of yarn and watching it nearly come to life. Very few things beat that feeling. It's that magic at the end that keeps me captured by my craft.
My favorites? Hmmm, this could be a long list! I have so many favorites... I absolutely love to be outside. I could spend a majority of my time lounging in the sun with a good book and glass of sweet iced tea. Actually, whether indoors or out, I'm a book lover. I never grow tired of reading. Or tea, for that matter. Earl Grey is a favorite that may or may not have something to do with my early childhood love of Jon Luc Picard. My favorite animals are birds, primarily conures. I have a deep love for their clown like personalities!
